How to Think Your Way To Success: A Deep Wealth Podcast with Carol Sanford

1 min read

Jeffrey Feldberg interviews best selling author Carol Sanford on her latest book, No More Gold Stars. The business landscape has shifted drastically over the years, with numerous changes occurring in terms of technology, globalization, and, most importantly, paradigms. One central issue is whether people should be encouraged to think for themselves or follow standardized procedures. This topic was the crux of a fascinating Deep Wealth Podcast featuring Jeffrey Feldberg, the founder of Deep Wealth, and Carol Sanford, an award-winning author and business educator. The podcast discussed the importance and power of thinking for yourself in the business world.

Reimagining Behavioralism in Business

Carol Sanford’s book, “No More Gold Stars,” challenges existing paradigms, arguing that for businesses and societies to evolve positively, individuals must learn to think for themselves. This emphasis on individual discernment and independent thought counteracts behaviorism’s view – that humans need incentives and should rely on experts for decision-making.

Sanford underscores that each person has the capacity to think critically and disrupt conventional thinking, using her book as a tool for readers to question themselves and expand their insights. This perspective goes beyond traditional business education or corporate leadership training, requiring a shift in external operations and an inner transformation as well#.

Intermezzos: A Different Approach to Reading and Understanding

In “No More Gold Stars,” Sanford interweaves ‘Intermezzos’ typically used in musical pieces as a unique method for readers to self-reflect and observe their reading patterns. This revolutionary technique urges us to reassess our process of comprehension — not just passively to receive information but actively and critically engage with it.

Societal Evolution: Looking Back and Forward

When asked about what she hoped the societal narrative would be like a hundred years from now if her advice were followed, Carol’s view was that this hypothetical was not helpful. She suggested that they should instead look back to pre-behavioral times and learn from the past.

She argued that even liberal arts, often touted as a counterpoint to the mechanistic view of education, does not go deep enough. According to Sanford, a radical rehaul – focusing on inner development, including aspects like reactivity and ego – is required in our education systems.

Conclusion

Sanford maintains that a revolution is needed in how we raise children, manage work, and shape our social and legal infrastructures for individuals to develop their ability to think independently and exercise self-determination. This revolution might be challenging and even overwhelming to some, but the rewards are substantial. It can lead to a more creative, committed, and discerning workforce, capable of continuous innovation and producing extraordinary outcomes.

Carol Sanford’s insights emphasize the fundamental need for a paradigm shift in our approach to handling not just businesses but also societal and personal matters. As we reexamine our traditional thought processes and value systems, we edge closer to a future where independent thinking becomes the norm, not the exception.

In closing, let her words serve as an inspiring call to action, “every moment is an opportunity to practice, by which you can see your thoughts, see your source, see your words and their effects.”
